Verdict

DIRECT IMAGE scored over hurdles off a 1 lb higher mark last time and is hard to oppose as he bids to make it 6 in a row. Galon de Vauzelle is another who runs off a lower mark than for a last-time-out hurdle success and can chase Robert Tyner's charge home. The Great White may prove best of the remainder.
